Tuxemon is a free, open source monster-fighting RPG.

Build Status



Tuxemon uses a number of open source projects to work properly:

  • python - version 3.6+
  • python-pygame - python game library
  • python-pytmx - python library to read Tiled Map Editor's TMX maps.
  • python-pyscroll - fast module for animated scrolling maps.
  • neteria - Game networking framework for Python.


  • libShake - rumble library for Linux.


If you want to try the game, its recommended to download and try the master branch first. The default development branch is often more up to date, but might have breaking bugs. If you want to try the latest version or contribute code changes, please use the development branch.

Tuxemon is available in the AUR.


Android builds are highly experimental. Download and install the apk from the releases page and install to your device. You will need to manually install the mods folder. Connect your device to your computer and make a folder called "Tuxemon" in "Internal Storage", then copy the mods folder. Tuxemon will also need file system permissions, which you can set in your phones settings.

Map Editor

Use Tiled map editor:


There are many scripts for various builds in the buildconfig folder. These are meant to be run from the project root directory, for example, to build the portable pypy build:

[user@localhost Tuxemon]$ buildconfig/

There will be a new directory called build, which will have the package if everything was successful.

WARNING! The build scripts are designed to be run in a dedicated VM. They will add and remove packages and could leave you OS in a bad state. You should not use them on your personal computer. Use in a vm or container.
